Human: Fall Flat headed to the Nintendo Switch later this year
Yesterday, Curve Digital announced not one, but two games for the Nintendo Switch. The first one is The Flame in the Flood (you can find more details about it in this post!), and the second one is Human: Fall Flat (that’s what this post is about!).
Described as an “open-ended physics based puzzle game”, Human: Fall Flat has you control builder Bob, who has been having recurring dreams of falling. Your goal in this game to have him escape those dreams, which filled with puzzles, but also dangers, and surprises at every turn.
The world of Bob’s dreams was created from his daily experiences, hopes, fears, and memories. And as you can see in the trailer and screenshots below, that world is quite chaotic (to say the least!). By the way, Bob is a just a plain, ol’ regular human, without any extraordinary powers or anything.
That being said, he can still perform the following actions:
- pulling the stuff around
- pushing the stuff with hands
- pushing the stuff with feet
- carrying the stuff
- climbing the stuff
- breaking the stuff
- using stuff to interact the other stuff
Now that’s some good stuff, isn’t it?
Here’s a trailer and some screenshots for Human: Fall Flat:
And here’s the main features:
- Direct and complete control of the character, nothing is scripted, no limits imposed.
- Fully interactive 3d environment, grab anything, climb anything, carry anything.
- Brittle objects are breakable by clumsy movements or by other objects.
- Full 3d sound emitted in a physically plausible way.
- Unlimited replay value created by you thinking outside the box.
- Play with mouse and keyboard or a game controller.
- Unique character customization. Make him you by painting the character or bringing real word textures with a web-cam.
Human: Fall Flat (Switch – eShop) will be released later this year, in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
